This handbook offers legislative drafters, law-makers and practitioners with an interest in Administrative Law, a helpful guide to the process of drafting and passing legislation. Taking the Nigerian legislative process as an example, but also making reference to the practice in other Commonwealth states, the book discusses the different types of Bill that may be introduced to the National Assembly, the drafting and analysis of Bills, and the powers and procedures that govern the passage of Bills through the legislature.

The book also considers basic techniques of legislative drafting, the importance of plain English, how to amend legislation and, above all, how to make legislation understandable and functional.
